English Civil War

The English Civil War has been the subject of study for 350 years. It is unfortunate that it is only now that we are beginning to establish how the soldiers were dressed and equipped.

As with lots of things about the ECW this area is obscured by myth, romance, conjecture treated as fact and plain ignorance...
